Great page turner for reluctant readers!

My high school English class had a class set of these books and it was assigned reading for the holiday season. The assignment was met with the usual groans, but the students dove in. Soon I was hearing remarks like, "Hey, I read the whole book in two days!" and "This is the first assignment that I have liked!" and "Guess what? I really read this book!" Most students actually finished reading the book in much less than the assigned time. A couple of them admitted that this was the first book they had actually read all the way through. The story takes place on Christmas Eve and involves a lost boy. It involves some tense situations and presents a number of good role models for children. After our class had completed the reading, each student who felt so moved wrote a note to Mary Higgins Clark. We were delighted a few weeks later when we received a letter from her expressing sincere appreciation for the many laudatory comments from the young readers. I recommend this book to youngsters from 9 to 99 who wish to have a "good read" for the Christmas season.

Great Holiday Read

Although not a traditional fan of Mary Higgins Clark, I read the book over the holidays and found myself glued to the pages. The characters are so real, and the suspense is spellbinding. You care so much about the characters that you can't put the book down.

Silent Night

I loved the novel. It was absolutely prefect. When I read the novel, I couldn't put it down! It keeps you on the edge of your seat through the whole book. Mary Higgins Clark just has a way of keeping you into the novel until you finish one her suspense-filled books. In the novel Silent Night, a lady named Catherine Dornan lost her wallet and her son. Her wallet fall out of her handbag, and her son ran after it. A lady named Cally Hunter stole her wallet and ran with it. However, when Cally got home her bother who is an escape killer, was there waiting for her. Brian, Catherine's son followed Cally home and consequently, Jimmy; Cally's bother, kidnapped him. The only thing Brian Dornan was worried about was getting back to his mother before Christmas and for him to get back the St. Christopher medal to his father, so he can get well. Risking his own life and safety...what a kid! You'll have to read the book to find out how the story ends. In my opinion, all of the characters in the novel are plausible because their actions and reactions are very believable, by how Mary Higgins Clark wrote it. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did.

One Of Her Best

This is one of Mary Higgins Clark's best books. Although short, it packs action and suspense onto each and every page. The child-hero was terrific--a real boy any of us could identify with. I really cared and I thank the author for that. I just wish Ms. Clark would stop making her female heroines (i.e., the child's mother) so physically gorgeous! Can't we have someone ordinary for a change?

It was extraordinary; it kept me coming back for more!

I like this very much. It was very exciting and thrilling. I read it in two days. It may be a fairly short book, but it has very good content. It has tons of suspense and keeps you wanting more. It's the type of book I like cause I did not ever want to put it down. Mary Higgins Clark books are the only books I read. They keep me enticed and into the book. Some of her books involve love stories, also. I love to read about love stories, but I also want something that will keep me reading. I don't like the mushy stuff all the time, but I do love a good ending. I like to read about murders and mysteries, all of which Mary Higgins Clark covers. The covering on the book is very interesting and makes you wonder what it is going to be about. It makes you want to pick it up and read it, right from the start. I am reading another book by this author called "All Around the Town". I highly suggest anyone who loves suspenseful books to read this. You'll never be able to put it down.
